I own a 388 and absolutely love it. If I didn’t have it, I wouldn’t have done half the things I’ve done in my life. The drums sound soooo good. Crunchy mid fi 70’s ooze. It’s sound almost crafted my style of music. BUT my friend is selling his MSR16 With a m312 console (all fully working and at the shop now being tested and serviced to 100%) Idk much of the difference, but if im gaining 8 channels with a similar sound, I might go for it. I’d have to trade my 388 to pay for it. Any thoughts? Could I use the low speed (7.5) on msr16 and get a similar sound quality that my 388 has? As well as being able to track at the higher speed for the higher quality. Obviously I don’t know much about this other than the fact of I love recording to tape and have a lot of experience with my Personal 388 machine. It was my first multitrack machine so I have no experience outside of it. Help????????
